Elementary (K-6th)

I have been working with Elementary K-6 for the past year. I have had students who could not understand what they were reading. I have had students who couldn't even do the basic math skills. After spending sometime with me the students basic math skills improved as well as their reading comprehension.


Phonics

I was on the staff of Hofstra University's Continuing Education Program called Saturday Morning Classes for Young People. For the past four summers I taught K-3 how to read which included how to pronounce their letters. These students were not reading on grade level and certainly not ready for the upcoming school year. These students progressed so much during the summer. It was so nice to see and the parents were very pleased.


Study Skills

I worked in the Continuing Education Department at Hofstra University's Saturday Morning Classes for Young People. I spent my summers tutoring Elementary students K-3 reading. I taught them how to brush up on their study skills. Their grades improved a great deal.


Theater

I have been performing or working at the theatre for over 25 years. I have been in the audience, behind the scenes or on the stage before.


Video Production

At Adelphi University I majored in English, but minored in Communications. My end of the year project was to create a Video Production. That video production was submitted into the Adelphi University film festival. There were two students who had this honor and I was one of them.


Ballet

I am a experienced dance teacher who has been studying dance for 35 years. I have taught tap, ballet, jazz and hip hop to students from ages 2 all the way to Adult. Some of my students have gone on to College and have continued their dance education there. I have been lucky enough to study with the who's who in the dance world. My teachers have danced on Broadway, won Emmy Awards as well as Tony Awards.


Cosmetology

I have been a dancer for 35 years. During that time I learned how to apply all my make-up myself. I even had the opportunity to apply make-up to my sisters bridal party.


Marketing

I have been working in the marketing field for over 20 years. I own my own business and I create my own marketing materials. I have used Microsoft Publisher as the main source. I made business cards and flyers.


Microsoft Outlook

I have been using Microsoft Outlook for over 12 years. I have been sending company e-mails as well as sending them to clients. We most recently update our system to a newer one.


Microsoft Windows

I have been working with all forms of Microsoft Windows for years. I had to submit papers for my undergraduate degree as well as my masters degree. I have been working in a company for the past twelve years and all we work with Microsoft Windows.


Regents

As a student at Oceanside High School I took Regents exams from 9-12 grade. I was lucky enough to have some of the greatest teachers. I wanted to pass this on to my own students. So this year I started tutoring students to prepare them for the Regents exam. These were students who were failing. Well they past their Regents exams with flying colors. I am currently working with a student who will be taking the exam this upcoming school year. It is so rewarding to watch a student work toward better grades.


Needlework

I have been working in a Summer Camp program teaching students from age 5 to 15 needlework. We have made needlepoint designs as well as pillows.


Microsoft Publisher

I have been working with Microsoft Publisher for about 12 years. I was summoned to work and create newsletters for different companies.


Film

At Adelphi University I majored in English, but minored in Communications. My end of the year project was to create a Video Production. That video production was submitted into the Adelphi University film festival. There were two students who had this honor and I was one of them.


Handwriting

I have been teaching K-3 graders how to read and write for the past 10 years. Their handwriting improved greatly. I worked with them one hour a week and they were prepared to work at school.


Common Core

I have been working with a student for the past few months on Common Core ELA. The teacher gave my student a packet of materials for us to work on. In the few months that I have been working with her, she has improved. The student has more confidence and sees a big difference in her work.
